2008. >> perhaps, john kerry is a skilled debater, but john kerry also wants to be secretary of state. i wonder how tough he went in those sections because that was the charge against david stockman after ronald reagan in '84. that's why reagan, he was too tough on him. >> ifill: can we talk about body language? one of the thinks we remember is the way al exwoar crowded george w. bush and gave him the look or the way someone sighed, the way the two relate standing next to each other. did you get anything watching that? >> i'm not sure there will be a moment easy to repeat over and over again in the next several days, television shows. i do think romney looked aggressive, maybe a little over-aggressive, a bulldozer, kept going, kept going. i thought if maybe there was a slight advantage, at certain times the president looked a little peefd, a little stiff, maybe, but i wouldn't say there was a big difference between the two. >> woodruff: how did you see it? >> i thought romney didn't know when to take the foot off the pedal a couple of times. he just kept going. >> woodruff: he wanted
kept taking the punches over and over again, i think john kerry might be enjoying the engineer of his second term right now. and folks at home you have know idea what it was like watching the debates with these folks here. however, i don't necessarily think this is a bad thing. i think barack obama was trying to play out of the john mccainhand book, be cool and restained. what you saw tonight was that approach didn't work and you will see a different strategy the next debate. >> eliot: mitt romney finally cut back to the middle. he wasn't the radical far-right extreme voice. we saw a rational analytical and empathetic mitt romney and president obama did nothing to take that apart. and i'm just amazed that we didn't see a more aggressive cross-examination. >> cenk: going into the debate i thought mitt romney would over do it going for zingers. it turned out president obama overdid it by playing defense too much. we would give way too many numbers, and it seemed like he would want to bore the audience enough that they would change the channel and we would mainta
